2.
A Silk-throwing mill built by George Courtauld in 1810. It is an interesting
and unusual example of early C19 industrial development. There are 3 blocks
of similar design of the same period within the mill, but the most important
is the block with a north front on South Street. 2 storeys with basements at
the east end of the block. The upper storey is weatherboarded and the ground
storey is of brick. The window arc in long ranges of fixed lights and top
hung casements, with glazing bars and small panes. At the east end the block
sets back slightly with 5 window range of double-hung sashes with glazing bars.
There is one doorway with a semi-circular fanlight and pilasters. Roof slate,
the blocks at the rear have corrugated asbestos roofs.

New Mills and Nos 66 to 70 (even) form a group.
